Yard droped my mast and layed it over in the partners a couple months ago.

We had ours off for a year and 7 months. Just had it stepped again two weeks ago. Brutal process to have it off the boat for so long. Repaired the spar itself, then gone a lot of rigging done.

Glad the yard will make it good. That must have been painful to watch.

No later then May 1st... I hope.

You know I am not a superstitious man but that's starting to not sound like a bad idea...

Not a superstition. Use the coin if (God forbid) you become shipwrecked. Of course the nickel I put under my mast won't get me too far should I find myself shipwrecked in Bermuda.

After all that, I would put a very expensive gold coin under your mast.
